World Book Week

We were very lucky to launch our special book week by receiving a visit from a real life author! Puffins welcomed Teresa Heapy to their classroom and showed her how hard they work. During her visit the children listened to one of her stories ‘Very Little Red Riding Hood’ and got to design their very own ‘very little’ character. Teresa thought they were amazing. Well done Puffins!
Another special event this week Puffins loved was reading alongside the Year 4 Robins. The children got to share their books from home or their favourites from our class library. Thank you Robins – we had a wonderful time!
What amazing costumes we had to celebrate World Book Day this year! Wow! Check out the photos to see what puffins dressed up as.
In Computing, Puffins have enjoyed designing their cars on Purple Mash. They have also been using the ‘2Calculate’ app to create a spreadsheet.

In Music the children were very excited to have a go at  playing the glockenspiels. They worked with their partners to play along, taking it in turns to hit the right notes.

In our Geography lessons we have been learning about Africa. This week, the children have enjoyed exploring their new African role-play area.
In PSHE Puffins have been learning all about ‘ownership’. To begin, the children discussed with their talk partners what they thought that word meant. Puffins came up with some good ideas. We then watched a short clip showing an example and what we should be doing to make sure our things stay ours. We brainstormed some of the children’s ideas:
In maths Puffins have been learning to use Base10 in their lessons to explore number. The children are learning to use a range of resources to support their learning.
